Meet mixed medium artist Brigette Kozash!

Brigette has worked in linocut, writing & publishing and stained glass.  In 2021, she focused her artistic endeavors on stained glass where she has thrived, not only becoming a talented glass artist but also having a brisk retail business doing both original creations and commissions.  Brigette has been a featured artist at recent Nac ArtWalks and has also been vending her wares at events in Houston and all around East Texas.  You can see her work at
